Another Trip To Mineral Lake, WA
I used the App, Campspot from the Google Play Store to rent the spot to camp on. Friday
Morning, I check in on the App to confirm my camping in that spot I had rented.
As I had my rig packed for camping when I left for work Friday morning. After work, I stopped at a gas
Station to fill up with gas so I didn’t have to while on my camping trip.
As I drove about 3 ½ hours, I ran to a lot of traffic but soon the roads started to narrow two mostly single
lanes both ways. I did stop by a gas station to pick up ice for my cooler.
Before I setup camp, I made a pit stop. There are two Bathroom Facilities within the Campground, no sinks or showers inside.
Setting Up Camp
I arrived a little after 7pm, stop at the check in office and got my Camping Pass for my vehicle. I back
into my slot to one side for easy access of the rear hatchback for my rig.
I laid out my tarp to put the Tent on so the tarp wouldn’t show. Since I had an easy setup tent, I had it setting on the Tarp in no time. I tried to use the tent stakes to anchor the tent, but it has gravel rock and was unable to use most of the stakes. Next time I need to bring at least 4 to 6 blocks to hold down tent if the wind comes up.
After the tent was setup, I started on the air mattress. Since this air mattress has a electric pump
incorporated within it, I had purchased a Jackery Portable Power Station to plug it into, to power it up.
I put the rest of my sleeping equipment in the tent. I then set up a table outside and a chair to eat on and
to setup my Coleman Triton Propane Camping Stove.
Now That Camp is Set up
Cell phone service in this area is very bad. So I decided to walk up to the bar to have supper and a few
drinks. I also noticed that they had free WiFi there. I could check messages and send some. Also to check weather conditions for the next two days.
After that I went to my tent since it was late and lit my BLUU Flameless Propane Heater to
take off the chill. A little while later, I turned off the heater and crawled into my sleeping bag and two covers to sleep comfortably.
The Next Day and the Rest of the
I woke up and made some coffee and had a little oatmeal using my Overmont Pot & Kettle. I
then headed off to fish from the shore since I didn’t have a boat. I noticed that the camp ground and lake was being swarmed by flying large ants / termites. I was told that they swarmed each year at this
It ended up being a very hot weekend. On the last day, a few people had caught a few fish and had them on a stringer that was in the water off the dock. It is well known that Otters swim in this lake. They lost all the fish on the string!
I cleaned up my camp ground slot and put it in the Dumpster provided.
